Paoli, Ind., Dec. 15--At falling tree crushed the life out of George Cornwell, the seventeen-year-old son of Simon Cornwell at his home near Valone today. The boy was cutting a tree and when it started to fall ran in the opposite direction from which he intended it to fall, but instead of the tree falling as intended, it fell the way he was running and on the entire length of his body, killing him instantly.
